BEHNA: Best Moments From Ted Cruz’s Amazing Interview With Mark Levin At #CPAC2017

On Thursday afternoon, Senator Ted Cruz spoke with “The Great One” conservative radio host Mark Levin at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

Cruz starts off by introducing the term limits bill he is working on in Congress. He says it would help a lot to “drain the swamp.”

And what’s amazing is the support for this. It cuts across in this polarized time, you get super majorities of Republicans of Democrats of Independents who all say throw the bums out, and we ought to listen.”

He slammed court decisions on President Donald Trump’s immigration executive order and 2nd Amendment.

“Both decisions are utterly lawless,” said Cruz, that the 9th Circuit Court did not follow federal law. “By statute, Congress has given the President the authority to suspend immigration any class of immigration if he deems it in the national interest.”

He also blasted the 4th Circuit Court for attacking the 2nd Amendment. Cruz said the circuit “used to be the most conservative court in the country.” He started his law clerk career at the circuit.

With the Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s hearing coming up, Cruz said “mark my words” that he would be confirmed.

But he also criticized Democrats for playing politics and holding up Trump’s nominee hearings.

“The anger on the left, I’ve never seen anything like it. I mean they’re right now opposing everything. Democrats in the Senate are filibustering absolutely everything. This is the longest we’ve been, the cabinet is still not confirmed. This is the longest we’ve been since George Washington without confirming a cabinet. They’re filibustering everything.”

It was funny when Cruz joked toasting to Harry Reid for giving Republicans the nuclear option. “It is a direct result of Harry Reid that we now have the most conservative cabinet in decades,” he said.

“Let me on behalf CPAC, thank Harry Reid. Harry Reid, thank you for Attorney General Jeff Sessions. and also we should be thanking Harry Reid for EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, for Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, and very very soon, I look forward to thanking Harry Reid for Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch.”

He thinks we will have another Supreme Court vacancy this summer. It would be a huge benefit for Trump to name a second justice.

What a great interview between Mark Levin and Ted Cruz.
